The Electronic Café International™ was founded in the Orwellian year of 1984. Actually, ECI is the mother of all cybercafes. ECI is, first and foremost, a networked cultural research lab: A unique international network of multimedia telecommunications venues with over 40 affiliates around the globe. For over a decade, ECI has functioned not only as a pioneer but as a leading multicultural community conducting ground-breaking aesthetic research in the exploration of real-time networked collaborative multimedia environments.
